"Easy away" = Impossible? The only one that got that said wasn't from the normal way.

I got the Pteradon achievement from just jumping really high on Cold Water

Time machine achievement : see 'Ecco forum page'This game is excellent (great OST, various graphics, smooth gameplay, nice difficulty curve)... until you reach 'The tube'.
ladouce 16 Mar 2018 21:32
"The tube" and "The machine" are ridiculously hard... and come on ! Restart "the machine" all over again when you get defeated by the last boss ??!! How mean is that !

Who made this set? Achievements are triggered by the launch of the game and from the viewing of the demo version. Im not talking about the achievement "Clear stage in The tube without taking damage". Where to play like TAS
Golem 24 Jan 2019 09:00
Need to completely redo this set
keyglyph 31 Mar 2019 19:35
Yay! Thanks to everyone who worked on fine-tuning these achievements in the last couple weeks!
kdecks 31 Mar 2019 23:27
It twas me. Everything should be working great. Plz report and send me a pm if you find problems. I may not notice tickets.
Golem 2 Apr 2019 07:57
Thank you for continuing to fix the sets.
ladouce 2 Apr 2019 18:36
Thank you for what you've done kdecks ! Great job for a great game !

All the nostalgia I had for this game apparently was for the sequel instead. It feels too labyrinthic and repetitive (same as music), lack of checkpoints is unforgiving, and the last stage is... masochistic. Good thing they improved in Echo: TToT :)
TindalosKeeper 26 Jul 2021 09:38
Odd how people doesn't come often here... Does Ecco scare people away so much? I mean, after going through "The Machine", I know better now and people is justified in not coming over, lmao.
kryptin 22 Aug 2021 18:10
OMG, that last level is insane. All that memorization just to get killed right away on the final boss and have to start it all over again. You win game, you win.

This is my first mastered game! I was playing through it because it's the game of the month on r/emulation, and after finishing the game I only had one achievement left ("Can't Touch This"), so I just went back and finished that one.It seems odd to me that there's no achievement for rescuing all 6(?) dolphins, and it wasn't clear what it did in-game either (although, I only rescued the first set of three, maybe both are needed to do something?).

Too much water. 7/10
Petenokor 22 Aug 2022 21:28
Mastered! Wow, it wasn't easy with The Tube and especially Machine and Boss. I had to try last fight a lot of times with level select before I was ready to beat the game. The idea to begin from the beginnig of the level after dying on boss turned last level and last fight into hell.
GnuRip 5 Jan 2023 21:44
Damn this game is hard. But I was able to beat every level using maps, I had the emulator running non stop a few days to be able to get the Ecco Hero achievement, but The Machine/Vortex broke me. Beating that boss is hard already, but doing the full very long Machine level after each try is just gruesome. After completing The Machine like 3 times I gave up and used the debug menu to get to the boss, and that one took like a million tries until I finally finished it. Beating this game back in the days without any maps or help must have been impossible. It's just too hard and time consuming.
